It’s All Connect!

It’s All Connected!


Did you know that St. Louis County is divided into seven commissioner-lead districts? Each of these districts all have unique identities: from beguiling nature to art communities – from rich history to unique shopping – from exceptional buildings to beautiful people. Obviously, St. Louis County is a pretty amazing destination, and these districts shine individually, but we shine even brighter together – just like our collaborators here in the St. Louis County Depot!

Each individual organization provides a service to our community by preserving history, educating by engagement, and spotlighting the arts, but together we are the Depot – always connecting culture and curiosity. 

The Depot & St. Louis County are connected in so many ways … it’s almost suspicious. Our tour guide, Hailey, has the high-powered sleuthing savvy to highlight in a mere matter of minutes all (or almost all, anyway) the bright spots when you explore inside the walls of the Depot and beyond. Come with us on this seven-part (district) journey that connects culture & curiosity in the Depot and across the county. Wonder awaits!

Starting today – each Wednesday a new video will be released on the St. Louis County Depot’s YouTube & Social Media (Facebook & Instagram).

Created by talented local filmmaker, Mike Scholtz, with the support and creative talents of Kristin Johnson & Hailey Eidenschink of the St. Louis County Depot team.

Girl Power!

As we approach the dog days of summer, our Depot team has been enjoying all the wonderful things that come with the season. Ice cold lemonade, Saturdays on the shore of Lake Superior, and of course summer camp.

When you come to visit The St. Louis County Depot, you might just spot some camp activities here in our building!

YWCA Duluth’s Girl Power! Is an after-school, lunch, and summer program that provides engaging and empowering experiences for girls in our community. And this summer the Depot is the home base for their camp program. Campers will be bouncing all around our facility and will be partnering with the organizations that call the Depot home for unique activities and experiences that can only happen here – from behind the scene looks at how museums operate, to performing in a professional theatre, to understanding the physics of a locomotive. We’re so excited to be working with YWCA Duluth and to show a whole new audience that this nearly 130-year-old train depot still holds new things to discover!

Bienvenue Coffee Fest

The Depot Will Host Bienvenue Coffee Fest

Bienvenue means welcome in French and we can’t think of a better way to welcome folks to The Depot than with a cup of coffee. The Depot is pleased to announce that the first annual Bienvenue Coffee Fest will take place this summer in and around the historic St. Louis County Depot in downtown Duluth at 506 West Michigan Street. Bienvenue Coffee Fest will take place on Saturday, July 10, 2021 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We invite visitors to sample delicious food and beverages from local and regional coffee and tea vendors, bakeries, and coffee shops. Food and drink vendors include Alakef Coffee, Duluth Coffee Company, The Rustic Inn, Mocha Moose, Ishtar Coffee, That Cupcake Lady, Mike and Jens Cocoa, King of Creams, and many more.

The Fest will boast an array of art, handicrafts, and gifts from local artisans, florists, and specialty shops. Artist Annmarie Geniusz will be creating a beautiful chalk mural throughout the day and a variety of our Depot galleries and exhibits will be open for visitors to enjoy. Live music from local performers, plus demonstrations, hands-on activities for kids, and more will also help brew up fun times at the Depot!
